Fleetwood Haiya, 4 others to resign


Newly elected Super League of Malawi (Sulom) President Fleetwood Haiya and four other officials are expected to resign from their respective club roles after being ushered in as top flight league managers.

Sulom rules do not allow officials to serve in club roles.

Haiya, who defeated Tiya Somba Banda with 30 votes against 18, serves as Nyasa Big Bullets Vice President.


Others that are likely to let go of their club roles include Civil Service United General Secretary Ronald Chiwaula, Blue Eagles Legal Adviser Solomon Gomezgani Mchawi, Mighty Tigers General Secretary Akuzike Kafwamba and Silver Strikers Board Member Daudi Mtanthiko.

Mchawi has been elected Sulom Legal Advisor unopposed whereas Chiwaula, Kafwamba and Mtanthiko have been elected committee members.

Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda, who retained his seat after beating Silver’s outgoing chief executive officer Thoko Chimbali by 34 votes to 14, confirmed that the body would expect the five to resign from their clubs.


“I think others already did but I just need to verify. As it is, we will be expecting them to present to us copies of their resignation letters from the clubs,” he said.

Haiya could not be reached but his club indicated that they were waiting for the board to make a decision.

“We are extremely buoyed by his election as president of Sulom. We are optimistic that he will bring the much needed reforms at Sulom in tandem with his manifesto. As for this position, we are waiting for the board’s direction,” Bullets’ Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga said.

Meanwhile, Chiwaula confirmed that he will resign from Civil.

“I will officially notify the board about the development and it is the board that is going to name the new GS,” he said.

Sulom held its elective annual general meeting at Nkopola Lodge in Mangochi on Saturday.
